VHCDC Preferred Lenders

When shopping for a mortgage, we recommend you apply to at least three (3) lenders. Inform each that you are a first-time home buyer and ask them about their current Down-Payment Assistance (DPA) program(s). Making at least three applications gives you options, allowing you to choose the best mortgage loan for you, and encourages lenders to give you their best deal up front.

We recommend you complete and submit your applications within a fourteen (14) day period. This will allow you to receive and evaluate all of the applications and minimize any impact to your FICO score. It will also give you ample time (another two weeks) to receive and give careful consideration to their offers. Below is our list of preferred lenders. Select any three (3) lenders and contact Housing Seervices to get a referral for mortgage pre-approval or mortgage pre-qualification.:
